Embossed Gift Bags

It’s just about time to start wrapping all those presents you’ve been purchasing for your loved ones- are you ready for what I have to show you today? I LOVE creative gift wrap and the holidays have me creating overtime! Today I want to show you how to create Embossed Gift Bags in four simple steps!! This is super easy and it adds a special little touch to those pretty little packages. Here is how to do it:


Step 1. Pull out your snowflake stamps and paper bags.

Step 2. Stamp snowflakes with Versmark ink onto bags.

 Step 3. Pour white or silver embossing powder over stamped snowflakes.

 Step 4. Use your heat gun to emboss each snowflake, creating a raised glossy finish.

And that’s it!

It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Aren’t they so fun? Just a little extra something to make the recipient feel even more special!

    I choose using actual colour to seal colour, too, for the same factors. Excellent tutorial!
